has received from the salt lake city tribune or "washington post" or one from colin powell yesterday, it had to do with barack obama the policies of the past four years and what he wants to do in the future but the fact that they have no idea what this other person is. and they have no idea who he's going to bring into the white house with him if he were to end up winning. >> as we talk about endorsements "the new yorker" had an extended endorsement of barack obama. not mitt romney. i want to read an excerpt. i thought they both argued on behalf of the president's record thus far and argued sort of the counter factual option which is, if the key note of obama's administration has been public investment whether in infrastructure, education or health, the keynote of romney's candiedisy has been private equity. a democracy cannot lay off its failing citizens. it cannot be content to leave any of its citizens behind and not the 47% who romney wishes to fire from the policy. very strong words. we've gone back and forth about who mitt romney is and how the campaign portrayed him. a piece i

night but all the big issues that were caused in the new york city area was because of the high tide, the historic, epic if you want to call it that high tide. the only reason they use epic is that's never happened before. we shattered the previous record high tide we had in 1960 with donna. that's why new yorksy we're talking so much about it, not because we're here. if it was any other city in the country this would have been a huge, big deal with this much of a storm surge. the same as it was for atlantic city, new jersey. might as well just draw the line on the map from atlantic city up to new york because all of those coastal communities in new jersey were hit extremely hard by this storm surge. what are we left with right now at this hour? take a look at the size of this storm. we still have clouds from the storm all the way down in atlanta, georgia, all the way up well up into canada, and now the clouds, as the storm has been moving the wrong way, have pushed all the way back past chicago toward iowa. i mean, this storm is just ridiculous in its size and scope. we didn't see t

the city of cleveland, ohio, african-american voters are 26 times more likely than white voters to use early in-person voting as their preferred way of voting. for this election in particular, even though it's been fine for every election in the past seven years, for this election in particular, early in person voting must be stopped. to the point of taking it to the supreme court of the united states with 28 days left before the election and meanwhile leaving the whole state's voting rules hanging. as ohio hits its voter registration deadline today and so many other states as well, what we know about how the parties have done on voter registration in the swing states opens a real interesting window into how the two parties are contesting the important states. this is a matter not just of national but of international importance. you can tell because the guardian newspaper from the uk has published a deep look into swing state voter registration numbers this past weaning. you can see their headline here. democrats struggle to repeat 2008 voter surge despite registration push. in sw

paul ryan was asked a pretty fair question, how do you bring opportunity to the inner cities if crime is a problem if you're going to make all those budget cuts, he decided he didn't want to answer those questions and stormed off the interview. he's not one for details. it's the only way he can hold on to some credibility, is to not say much of anything. >> i want to look at my new favorite thing which is this gawker poster of mitt romney debating mitt romney. >> it's a lengthy description, but number one, preexisting conditions are covered under my plan. >> suppose they were never insured. >> if they're 45 years old and they say i want insurance because i've got heart disease. you can't play the game like that. you've got to get insurance when you're will and if you get ill then you're going to be covered. >> joy, you have trouble keeping a straight face on this. >> it was great. >> we don't play the game that way on preexisting conditions. >> we did for an hour and a half last week. >> you just don't sit in your apartment and die on the upside according to mitt romney. with pa
